Holistically, I’d use clove oil which contains antimicrobial compounds that act against bacteria and digestive problems. You can add a few drops of clove oil to water as a natural remedy. Peppermint, tea tree, sage, myrrh, clove, pine needle and eucalyptus will help cleanse your mouth and freshen your breath.
